Abstract

This chapter examines and explains cyber resilience, internet of things, software-defined networking, fog computing, cloud computing, and related areas. Organizations develop these technologies in tandem with cyber resilience best practices, such as processes and standards. Cyber resilience is at the intersection of cyber security and business resilience. Its core capabilities encompass integrated strategic policies, processes, architectures, and frameworks. Governments and industries often align defensive and resilient capabilities, to address security and network vulnerability breaches through strategic management processes.

Background

In the present decade, cyber resilience solutions have played a vital role in protecting organization’s infrastructures. This includes spanning organization’s ability to in tandem deliver predictable results aimed at decreasing adversative, circumstantial and consequential cyber activities—merging policy and security capabilities, such as information security, business continuity operations and structural resilience. Thus, the advent of cyber resilience capabilities has evolved extending from significant technology and security elements, to contemporary business processes. Such cyber activities can be viewed as security components that span availability, integrity and confidentiality (AIC).

Today AIC triad serves as an epitome for supporting an organization’s organizational policies. Similarly, these security elements continue to play a considerable role in the global enterprise’s environment. These processes are designed to support IT systems, data and services as well as ensuring IoT systems are capable of withstanding active or future threats. The next section discusses the evolution, impact and future trends affecting cyber resilience, IoT systems and relatively other infrastructure areas.
